1. Olive Oil

Olive Oil

I know it seems crazy to put oil on your already oily acne prone skin.

Olive oil has been used for many years as a cleanser and works wonders as home acne treatment.

For best results pour a small amount of olive oil onto your hands and massage deeply into the skin.2

Allow the oil to sit for at least 3 minutes, then place a steamy towel over the face.

The steam will help pull impurities out of your pores.

After the towel cools use it to wipe away the remaining oil.2

2. Castor Oil

Castor Oil

Castor oil works the same way as olive oil for a home acne cleanser.

The reason why these oils work as facial cleansers is because skin naturally contains oil.

Many of the cleanser we buy are branded as “oil-free.” Water doesn’t dissolve oil, oil dissolves oil.

When the oils from the skin are removed, the body creates even more oil creating oily skin, or it may react by not creating any oil and thus leaving your skin dry.

It makes sense to use oil to help gently remove the dirt and oil from your face to help clear acne.

3. Baking Soda

Baking Soda

Baking soda works two ways as an at home acne treatment.

First it exfoliates the skin by buffing away dead skin and opening up clogged pores.

Another way is the alkaline substance of baking soda kills off bacteria in the skin that causes acne.

To use baking soda, wet your face and then create a paste with baking soda and water in your hand.

Massage the paste into your face gently for one minute.

Finish by rinsing with cool water and patting dry.
